Re: [FL] Latency issues - Is Cox working on their back-end syste
The only problem is that traceroutes aren't proving very helpful in locking down what's causing the erratic latency, as it's tough to actually catch and the results we're all getting are contradictory. For example, the line quality/jitter testing from DSL Reports consistently shows 2% loss at the last hop, but none of the folks connecting in from the outside are showing that on their ends. I pretty much can't traceroute since I'm on Cox Home HSI and it's only three hops out the residential gateway and back in through the business side and my Home HSI connection is also being affected to a less obvious extent.
I'm thinking that the only way this is gonna get caught and fixed is to have the connection actively monitored from Cox's end for a few days, during which I'll see about getting everyone to pile in and load the connection down so we can maximize it acting up.
In the meantime I'll see if I can enlist everyone using the servers to ping and traceroute the snot out of the server when the connection goes screwball and see if we can find anything to point at.
